A crash on the M20 that has been causing major delays for Kent motorists has been cleared.

All lanes were reopened by 4pm after an earlier smash between a car and HGV, which shut two lanes and caused long queues.

The accident, between J8 and J9 coastbound, blocked the carriageway.

"No serious injuries have been reported."
